"Northstar" is an energetic prog rock song by Danny Sullivan, an indie musician based in Athens, GA. This track features piano 🎹, acoustic & electric guitars 🎸, drums 🥁, vocals 🎤, various bits of percussion, and the legendary slide whistle. At 132 BPM and featuring various time signatures, this progressive rock tune is quite fresh.
The inspiration for this song struck me as I was sitting on my back porch on an overcast night. The only light visible in the sky was the North Star as it peaked through the passing clouds. To be honest, I'm not an astronomer so it very well could have been Sirius or Canopus or a number of other stars. The poetic side in me said it was the North Star, so that's the story I'm sticking to. We had a nice chat.
